A new two-toned paint scheme with only 4 color variations replaced the "jelly bean" look.
The "Flying Colors" banner was added to the tail engine air inlet in 1976 (the registration number used to be there)

The 727 ruled the fleet

A ticket jacket (left) shows off the new interiors. Braniff was the 1st to introduce the "wide body look" on its narrowbodies. They had sculted ceilings with indirect lighting, overhead bins instead of coat racks and center seats that would fold down into a table.

To the right and below is a post card promoting interchange service with Alaska Airlines. Alaska later switched this service to American Airlines (trivia: Per the AA/Alaska agreement, only 8 of Alaska's 727s could operate the service. All 8 of these planes were ex-Braniff 727s)
